A container with a drainage hole is necessary for all plants. Never keep any plant in a planter that doesn’t have a hole in the bottom.

Each plant has a different need, and understanding that is a little tough. Just stick to the thumb rule of watering it when the topsoil feels dry. Read thoroughly about your plant and then water it. Seasons play a considerable role, and indoor plants tend to need less water in winters and monsoons.

Don’t Water the Leaves, Water the Roots

Always water the roots, and don’t waste water by splashing it all over the plant. You can sprinkle a little water on the leaves for cleaning them once a week but stick to pouring water where the roots are!

Excess water in the soil can lead to root rotting and can cause plant death. So, water it thoroughly and wait for the soil to soak the water and throw the extra out from the hole. Remove the excess water from the plant plate you have kept below it.
